Here's the 2nd of the 7 grands' Easter garments. This is for Miss R who requested pink with bunnies and hearts. I got the pink and hte bunnies, but no hearts. We'll save those for another time.I found this fabric which is a cotton blend, almost linen like. It was in with the holiday prints. I love that it doesn't scream Easter, even though the toile pattern does have rabbits.
Next, it's on to Lil' E's and Lil' B's dresses. I'm thinking they are going to be made alike. Their mom has purchased some antique handkerchiefs that I will incorporate into these dresses, maybe as collars. One of them has an embroidered E, the other a B. They are white. The fabric is a purple that leans toward lilac. Lil' E's only requests were that it be purple and have sleeves and a bow in the back. She also said that Lil' B wants purple, too. This fabric is also a cotton blend with a fairly loose weave like linen.
Miss K, our oldest, and I are consulting one another over the internet and cell phone about her dress. I've bought fabric that she has approved, so now, I've just got to make sure I get the right style. Her reply when I asked her where she shops for dresses was, "Well, Granmomma, when we go shopping for clothes, I always walk right past the dresses without looking. I wouldn't be caught dead in a dress at school. The only time I wear a dress is when I have to and it's a fancy occasion." So, she's not liking fru-fru anymore. I want her to want me to keep sewing for her, so I will try to please this sweet young lady who will be 11 in May.
Then, it'll be on to the boys' clothing.
